When Hot Chocolate Meets Cookies
If there is one family-friendly beverage that we all enjoy indulging in at this time of year, it’s got to be hot chocolate!
It’s the perfect accompaniment for so many occasions from watching a Christmas movie (complete with our festive bingo of course!) or wrapping presents through to trimming the tree or warming up from a brisk winter walk – there really is no better drink option!
And when it comes to sweet treats around Christmas, cookies are a firm favourite with children, adults and Santa alike! So, we decided it was time to combine the two and thus these Hot Chocolate Cookies were born!
Warm from the oven, they are deliciously and dangerously gooey in the centre with a chunk of chocolate and a melting marshmallow.
However, if you are able to exert more self-control than us, and haven’t eaten them all within the first 30 minutes, then we can assure you that they are just as scrumptious once they have cooled fully. And, they are somewhat easier and tidier to eat at that point too!

While we love the richness that the dark chocolate gives here, feel free to switch out the chocolate bars for whichever kind your family prefers; both milk and white chocolate would make fantastic gooey centres for these cookies.
Do stick with the dark chocolate chips at the start of the recipe however, otherwise you might find the cookies become a little too sweet.
So, if you’re looking for another weekend activity or something to add to your hot chocolate station this year, we suggest you look no further than these cookies – they definitely do not disappoint!
